Hajjar Selected as SEI Fellow
Jerome Hajjar, Professor and Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been selected to be a Fellow of the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers for his leadership and mentoring in the structural engineering profession. Prof. Hajjar’s research and teaching interests include the design of steel and composite steel/concrete building and bridge structures, assessment of infrastructure systems, and earthquake engineering, and he has published over 170 papers and edited three books on these topics. Prof. Hajjar is a member of the SEI Technical Activities Division Executive Committee and the Committee on Specifications of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). He was made a Fellow of ASCE in 2007, and has won several research and teaching awards, including the 2010 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award, the 2009 ASCE Shortridge Hardesty Award, the 2005 AISC T. R. Higgins Lectureship Award, and the 2000 ASCE Norman Medal. Congratulations to Prof. Hajjar for this distinguished honor!
The Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) is a vibrant community of more than 25,000 structural engineers within the American Society of Civil Engineers. SEI started on October 1, 1996 in order to serve the unique needs of the structural engineering community while influencing change on broader issues that shape the entire civil engineering community.
Because SEI members are leaders in structural engineering practice and academia, SEI provides great networking opportunities while stimulating coordination and understanding between academia and practicing engineers – driving the practical application of cutting edge research.
SEI produces technical publications, journals, conferences, continuing education, codes and standards, and professional practice documents that advance the structural engineering profession.
